7:14 am
robin and david. >> you want to expand upon that a little bit more how it could affect the 401(k)s here in this country? >> reporter: well, there's no question, robin, that if europe tips into recession and britain is the fifth largest economy in the world, it will be in turmoil. these are large trading partners of the united states and the markets hate the uncertainty of it all. and so with the economy growing so slowly right now, anything could tip it over. >> you said it best there. the uncertainty really drives the markets wild. it is razor thin right now what can happen. terry, thanks so much. to amy with the other stories. >> this is sad. coast guard crews have recovered one body in the search for that family who was sailing off the gulf coast. they say they are trying to stay positive but they have made another heartbreaking discovery. look at that. they found tennis shoes, water bottles of the kayaks and life jackets. they say likely all belonged to 45-year-old ace kimberly and his

the solar impulse left new york city on monday. its next stop is abu dhabi where the plane began its round the world journey more than a year ago. >> thank you. the official estimate is in. 1.3 million people showed up for the cleveland cavaliers victory parade thursday. that is more than three times the city's actual population. fans scaled a parking garage. i'm told port-a-potties, whatever they needed to get on top of to get that view of lebron james and the nba champs. it's been 52 years since their last championship. they're literally climbing the walls. they're so happy. people were describing this when they came from all over the country as a pilgrimage, religious overtones. serious business in cleveland. >> 52 years they waited for that. >> a long time. >> enjoy. thanks, amy. got to switch gears now, that dangerous mission in the south pole to save two sick workers. we can report this morning success as the rescue plane was

7:18 am
station they had come from. the patients switching planes there and flying on to chile. just the third time in 60 years that a midwinter rescue has been attended. >> they're putting crews in danger. putting lots of people supporting those crews in danger. so these people had to be really sick and it was a tough decision to make. >> reporter: the national science foundation which runs that south pole station isn't revealing what the patients are suffering from or where they're being taken. but this morning, as far as the harrowing rescue goes, it could not have gone better. david. >> those pilots who flew through darkness 24 hours a day, incredible. thanks, alex. right back over to ginger. we talked about the storms. now the heat. >> you know that's part of the fuel from tulsa to evansville and paducah. heat advisories, 105 feels like in little rock. 101 in fayetteville.

7:32 am
chef, even gracing the cover of this lifestyle magazine. >> i started selling at different farmers' markets and couldn't keep up with the demand. >> reporter: but police say the wanna-be model had a darker side wanting to end a contentious custody battle with her ex-boyfriend, bradley sutherland, father the of their 3-year-old by having him murdered. >> i thought it was a joke. in all honesty we all thought we were being punked for a short period of time. >> reporter: police allege buckingham even recruit the her new boyfriend, joseph chamblin to help kill him. they say he told them about the alleged plot. authorities setting up an undercover sting where buckingham allegedly paid a $300 deposit. the total cost, 3,000 bucks. locals say the community is in shock. >> no one would ever imagine. she was well liked because what she gave back to the community after she came

serving. >> reporter: but as for her ex -- >> i don't feel angry. i feel kind of sad she felt the way she did that she had to do that to try to take my son from me. >> reporter: and buckingham is now out on $150,000 bail. she's wearing an ankle monitor. abc news has not been able to reach her lawyer but we know she'll face a judge on monday, robin. >> that we do know, for more let's bring in abc news chief legal analyst dan abrams. the credibility of the boyfriend, how important is that. >> he turns her in and typically in a indication like this he'd be critical. the reason he's not that important is because the tennessee authorities literally go in, they go undercover, they get a deposit from her to go ahead and commit this crime. then they show her pictures of what she thinks is now her dead ex and she then pays the remainder of the money. the authorities say, so that's going to become the critical point in this and as a
7:34 am
less important. >> so with all that what does the defense say? >> i think she's going to end up pointing the finger at him, at the guy who turned her in. you know, because they're two sort of exes at this point and if she does that, he then becomes the focus of the defense. i think she's going to argue he set me up. this was his money. he's the one who wanted me to do this. he's the one who was pushing for this. i never really wanted that. we'll have to see exactly what it'll be. >> what possible sentencing is she faceing? >> well, she could face if convicted like 15 to 60 years but you have to wonder whether there's going to be some sort of deal here, right. this is someone who friends say was suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder. does the victim meaning the father of her child not want to really move forward with this? >> it seems to be the case. >> i think he's got a level of sympathy for her and if that happens, you could see a deal here where maybe she gets a few years in prison. remember, she's out on $150,000 bail. it's not
7:35 am
>> isn't she pregnant too. >> she is pregnant. she is pregnant. presumably with the child of the same guy who ended up turning her in. >> maybe that will play too. >> right. that's a big question mark. i think that could end up being a factor in this case and come up possibly as part of the defense. >> we'll see what happens. all right, dan, thank you. we turn to that bizarre story of a texas woman who woke up from surgery with a thick british accent of the rare condition is called foreign accent syndrome and apparently there's no known cure. abc's mara schiavocampo is here with more on this. hey, mara. >> hey, david, good morning. imagine waking up from surgery sounding like a completely different person. at first this woman's doctor thought it was due to swelling, her kids thought she was faking it. but it's actually something very real. mom of three lisa alamia is a born and bred texas girl. >> i say you all the time before the accident once i got the
7:36 am
said you are. >> reporter: is from england. it all started in december of 2015. she went in to surgery to fix an overbite and came out with a new british accent. >> i've never been outside of the country except for a mission trip to mexico and that's definitely not where my accent came from. >> reporter: listen to her voice before in a video her family made for their church. >> you guys have inspired us and befriended us and we love you. >> reporter: and today. >> i was very shocked. very -- i didn't know how to take it. i was very confused. >> reporter: so just how does something like this happen? it's an extremely rare medical condition called foreign accent syndrome. only about 100 reported cases ever. alamia's neurologist ran a full battery of tests but says everything came back normal. >> to know that she's not faking it, not making this up gets just such a rare condition that even
7:37 am
don't believe that this is the real condition. >> reporter: while the accent can die mennish over time it can also be permanent and there is no known cure. now alamia plans to start speech therapy but has a message that sounds great regardless of the accent. >> you're still you. this accent doesn't define you. you are who you are. >> reporter: now it's most often caused by trauma or stroke but her doctors will keep doing tests to get to the bottom of it. part of the small 15% not due to head trauma. >> doctors say it is a real thing and i was struck by what she said. she'd only ever traveled to mexico. she hadn't even been exposed to the british accent. >> a woman from kansas woke up with an irish accent. so it can be an accent that you don't necessarily know is in you but it's in you. >> fascinating. >> does it wear off. >> it has gotten better over the last seven months but t

7:41 am
jon, i'm pretty sure owning an nba team is kind of expensive. what are you hearing? >> it is. and, you know, the president has said in the past that he fant sides about being part of an ownership team of an nba team. but he just yesterday white house press secretary josh earnest said it again, said the president would be very interested in being part of an ownership team. almost like he's putting up in big neon letter, let me be part of a time. obviously he would have to have wealthy partners. he has money but not that kind of cash. >> i remember the press pool was waiting off air force one, the president did not emerge and finally the first family walks up to the plane because they were watches the cavs and did not want to miss the end of the dame. >> the president is the ultimate basketball fan. you know, david, he has some experience as a basketball coach. he coached for a little while sasha's middle school team. so he's got a little bit of experience and check this out, i love this video. this is from
7:42 am
the president actually was taking time to show steph curry how to hit a three-point shot. >> so we know that he was really interested in those two teams. any idea like what team he might be looking at getting into? >> well, you know, the bulls, the chicago bulls, that's the team he loves, of course, that is one of the most expensive franchises in all of professional sports and jerry reinsdorf shows no interest in selling it but he'll be living in washington for two years after leaving the white house. the washington wizards are here. who knows. maybe an expansion team. maybe a team in hawaii. >> how was sasha's record? how did that team for the record. >> they had a little bit of a problem and wanted to spend too much time practicing their three-point shots and couldn't quite reach the rim. >> jon karl, one of our insiders, thanks. jeff rosen fresh off the trial of brock turner is proposing a new law for those convicted of sexual assault and let's get right to sunny hostin. our
